    Very welcoming campsite
    Very quiet relaxed campsite, run by a really lovely welcoming couple. Great facilities, everything to make your stay comfortable. Ruins of Galey castle right on the doorstep & on the shore of lough Ree with easy access to the water. Lough boat can be hired from owners.

    Very relaxing
    Lovely clean and peaceful site on the shores of Lough Ree. Toilets & shower area in top notch condition..€1 gets you a token for the shower and lasts 4 minutes. Have tv room , pool room . Owners are very genuine and friendly.

    Disappointed
    Quiet, peaceful campsite - well laid out - owned by a friendly couple. I had read reviews where it was found to be very clean - sadly that wasn't my experience. Kitchen, especially the microwave, and the bathrooms could do with a deep clean and some tlc. It's a pity because otherwise location, etc, was perfect.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here in my camper van with 3 dogs (Oct 2021). Nice owner, very laid back attitude & friendly (No Gestapo rules about dogs which was refreshing).Nice quiet fellow campers on the small site. Had a great nights peaceful sleep.
I am told washing/toilet facilities are being upgraded this winter 😁
Definitely recommend this place. Cheap for my van €20 for a night 🤙

The site was pleasant and situated in a quiet location. The proprietor was a pleasant bloke helpful and a good business man. There were a couple of issues, the communal areas, showers, toilets etc seemed like they needed a deep clean. The other which will be temporary was the building work that was ongoing early until late in the evening which was very noisy. Price was fairly high compared to other sites visited which were a better standard €25 night for campervan and 2 adults showers extra €1

The ancient castle of the Ui Maine is located on the waters edge, marking the edge of the lands owned by this clan. Beside the castle is the remains of Lord Croftons boathouse.
